    Just bought a remington 700 with remingtons adjustable trigger. Is there a big difference between this and the timney trigger. How hard would it be to replace this with a timney trigger? The remington trigger dosent feel consistent to me.

    It sucks, it sucks, and it also really sucks. This is the third generation of the pro mark 10. I am assuming you are talking about the one with the little Allen screw in the heel of the trigger. As far as the timmney, they are awesome. I don't know your abilities, but they are not difficult to replace or install. If you have ANY doubt, have a smith do it. Timmny is anise trigger, jewel triggers are THEE best. ANY of those two are better than the one you have . Swap out that trigger, you won't be sorry. AIM SMALL, MISS SMALL. lightbulb 7STW

    The new Remington triggers are a improvement over the last ones but not as good as the old
    40 X triggers of old. But they are still factory triggers and are not as crisp as most after market
    triggers.

    I have had good luck with them after honing the sear surfaces, but if you don't know the proper
    angles you can destroy them.

    They will adjust down to less than 2 pounds but I would recomend 2.5 lbs for safety with the
    Remington. but with the Jewell and Timney weight is not an issue.

    MUCHO! I wouldnt have a Timney in the house but am slowing converting everything to Jewell.

    Keep the factory or move to a Jewell.

    For the money, Rifle Basix triggers are no slouch.

    Cant you get them direct from Jewell? Make sure you order one with the safety included.

    Timney is mucho better than the new stock Rem. trigger. If you have some mechanical ability the swap is very easy. I use them on my Rems. set about 2 to 2.25 pounds and they work well. Your groups should tighten up immediately upon first range trip with the timney.
